My models

I love seeing my FO being used. It really makes me feel great to know that the things I work so hard on are not just being thrown in a drawer somewhere. So here are a few pictures of some of my projects being “modeled”.

Pink spingish hat. This one is neat since this is the second child to wear this hat! I don’t have a pic of the original owner but I love that it is still being used by new babies!

I made her this whole outfit to come home in from the hospital but since she was enormous none of it fit except the booties.

Not anything I made but here is a picture of Vicious making my Pom poms. Child labor at its best 🙂

Now off to finish up the hat I am working on and start on a diaper cover!

Whip up my WIPs

I spent all day yesterday getting my half finished projects completed. I turned of the computer, turned on some music, invited my oldest kids friend over, put the baby in a nap, and knit until I finished SOMETHING!

My mother in law loves hand knit dish cloths so I usually have atleast one on my needles at all time. She thinks they are the best gifts ever and I can make them in my sleep when I actually pick up the project and do it.

Very simple but it’s finished and that’s what matters. I ended up blocking it since the bond off corner was doing something weird and the blocking made it not look wonky. I will stick this in my bin for Christmas gifts.

I then picked up that football hat that I was so sure was going to be quick and finished it. I was correct, it was quick when I actually worked on it. It turned out so cute!! I plan to make another for my nephew for Christmas but with a different team patch. This is for a little boy turning the big 0-1 and his mom is a huge steelers fan. I can’t wait to send it to them.

I have been dying to make a granny square crochet blanket but the problem I was having was I didn’t know how to crochet. So to solve that problem I sat down and finally taught myself. Granted I can only do a single crochet right now but you got to start somewhere right? I made what will eventually be another dish cloth.

All in all it was a very productive day. I always feel so accomplished when thing are finished. Now to start on some of my orders and finish my entrelac scarf. Got to have atleast one WIP around. 🙂

What’s next?

I have spent the last several months knitting hat after hat after hat.  Everyone I know decided this was the year to have babies and what better gift then a cute little hat to cover a bald little human head.  Now that the last hat is in the finishing stages, I need to start on my gifts for Christmas.  Only problem is I have no idea what to knit!!!

I am thinking maybe mittens for the nieces and nephews, hand towels for the inlaws and grandparents. Not sure what will be put on the needles for the men in the family.  I am ready to get away from the round and round of hats for a bit though. Stay tuned for what is to come…
